4 Ways To Help Your Lawyer Allow You To If you want an attorney at all, you must work closely with them so that you can win your case. Regardless how competent these are, they're likely to need your help. Allow me to share four important ways to help your legal team help you win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - no matter what information you're likely to reveal for them. Privilege means what you say is kept in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team must know everything in advance - most importantly information another side could check out and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a regular and factual account of most information regarding your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the current data they need to help them win. 3. Show Up Early For All Engagements Do not be late when you're appearing before a court and steer clear of wasting the attorney's time, too, because they are promptly, whenever. Actually, because you may want to discuss last second details or even be extra prepared for the situation you're facing, it's a smart idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You May Have Your Act Together If you've been arrested for any sort of crime, it's important to be able to prove to the court that you both regret the actions and they are making strides toward enhancing your life. As an example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for a rehab program. Be sincere and linked to the community the judge is presiding over. Working more closely together with your legal team increases your likelihood of absolute success. Try these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you should win your case.

Being Late And Snowing I Through Them In The Back Of My Pickup,. Now Its Been Two Months And Posted In Local Lost And Found Sections And Heard Nothing Back, What Is A Reasonable Amount Of Time To Wait To Either Keep Or Sell Them?
30 days would be a reasonable amount of time. Since twice that amount of time has passed then the paintings are now yours.
Path Of A Probate Lawyer?
I Aspire To Become A Probate Lawyer. I Am Still In High School But For My Key Skills Class I Need To Plan Out A Path For Myself After I Finish High School (Age 16). And I Was Wondering If Anybody Could Help Me. I Need To Know What I Should Study At College, How Long For, What About University? Also Will I Be Put Through Training On Any Courses I Should Take. Anything Could Be Helpful. 10 Points To Most Precise And Understandable Answer.
It depends on your country, state or province of your residence. If you reside in the US and/or plan to attend school there, you need to complete your undergraduate studies and go to law school (except for Vermont which allows you to clerk instead of law school). After law school you will need to pass the bar examination in the state(s) where you wish to practice. You will need to comply with all the licensing requirements for the jurisdiction(s) in which you decide to practice. It does not matter what your undergraduate degree is in as long as you do well. Law school admissions offices seek a diverse group of students so someone who majors in history, political science or similar areas do not necessarily have a lock on acceptance. I know of lawyers whose undergraduate degrees were in subjects like French, Theology, Civil Engineering, Sociology, Physics, Psychology and English. Probate law includes areas like accounting, bookkeeping, litigation, tax law, mental health issues, family law and a lot of other things a person might not normally associate with probate law. Expect to spend four years in college, three years in law school and then a period of time hopefully working with another lawyer or a law firm with a focus on probate law. There is no "average" salary. What you make depends on the state you practice in, the size of the city or town, whether you work for a large or medium size firm or are a solo practitioner and the type of cases you take on. You can earn anywhere from $50,000 per annum working in poor, rural areas with low to moderate income clients to hundreds of thousands of dollars if you're in New York, LA, Chicago and work with well-heeled, wealthy clients.

Law Students/Lawyers/ Etc Help?
I'M Thinking Of Applying To Law School And If I Can Get A Good Enough Score On The Lsat, I Think I'Ll Be Headed To A T14. However, Recently I'Ve Heard Some Things That Are Making Me Rethink My Decision, So I Have Some Questions For All You:
1. What Is The Type Of Law Highest In Demand?
2. What Is The Type Of Law With The Highest Salary?
3. I'M Interested In Business Law, What Is A Typical Work Day?
4. If I Become A Lawyer Am I Destined To Live A Life Of Misery Due To 24 Hour Work Days, No Weekends, Etc?
5. If There Was One Thing You Could Change Regarding Law School/ Being A Lawyer Etc, What Would It Be?
6. How Long Did You Study For The Lsat And What Was Your Score?
I Know This Was A Lot, But If You Could Answer That Would Help Me So Much.
1) At my law school, patent law and intellectual property were big. I know a lot of people who took the patent bar last year and our salutatorian had a PhD in some sort of funky type of chemistry. I think it depends on the area of the country.
2) Depends which firm you work for, but I'm guessing those who practice in tort make the most since they generally work on contingency. (Think ambulance chasers.)
3) If you're corporate counsel, it's a sweet gig. 40-45 hour work week. I know some people in law school who worked for companies and just sat in their offices watching DVD's. If you work for a firm that has businesses as clients, you might expect to slave away for them when you're an associate.
4) Not if you don't want to be! I know plenty of attorneys who work 8-5 M-F and that's it. (Yes, they still can live cushy lives.)
5) I would have researched the different concentrations early on. In some respects I wish I would have chosen a different school, but some of the friends I made were great and I wouldn't trade that.
6) I took the Kaplan class and I got a 164. The LSAT is just reading and logic puzzles. If you don't have money for Kaplan, just go and buy a puzzle book or an LSAT book and practice, practice, practice! I'm just a procrastinator, so I needed something more structured.
University Majors + Law (I.R. /Attorney)?
1.How Realistic Is It To Plan On Double Majoring
In International Relations And Law School To Become A Civil Rights Attorney.
2. What Schools Are Good For Law And Not Impossible To Get Into?
Please Only If You Know What Youre Talking About..
There is no major in law school If you're talking about double majoring in IR and "Pre-law" at a college, the double major isn't actually necessary. Neither one of these majors will necessarily get you closer to being a civil rights attorney.
In my view, your choice of a major is not as important as (1) getting very good grades (which is more likely if you choose a major that interests you); (2) majoring in something that requires a lot of reading and writing; and (3) doing well on the LSATs. Having some experience in a law clinic or otherwise showing that you don't just want to go to law school because you can't find a job doing something else is helpful.
I majored in Education (lots of reading and writing). I work with lawyers who majored in accounting, business, philosophy, history, engineering, French (no kidding) and pre-law. The major is less important than doing well.
If you're committed to Civil Rights work, you could consider majoring in history with a minor in black studies, a major in social work, etc. There's no magic in picking a prelaw major, as long as you ensure you taken whatever prerequisites are required by the law schools you plan on trying to get into. Most general ed requirements will meet prereqs. Preprofessional programs are sometimes only helpful since the advisors have experience with the law school application process, not because "prelaw" is such a useful major by itself.
Schools that are good and which ones are difficult to get into varies by location. There are some nationally known schools like Yale, Columbia, Stanford and Harvard, but there are also regional schools that are very good. When you're ready, there are guides to getting into law school just like the ones for colleges. They will give you a profile for their average candidate's GPA and LSAT, just like colleges have a profile with average GPA and SAT, You can weigh your credentials against those criteria, to figure out which ones to apply to. If all else is equal, compare pass rates on the bar exams. School A students may have a 72% pass rate, and School B might have a 85% pass rate. This suggests that School B may do a better job of training lawyers, although certainly there are lawyers who would say that School B just does a better job at training students to take the Bar exam. Personally, after spending all that money and time, I want a better chance at passing the bar!
If you take Yale, Harvard, Columbia and a few other schools out of the mix, you are likely to have more career opportunities as a law review/top student at School A than being an average student at School B. School A may have a better job placement program than School B or a highly renowned legal professor who has authored a book on Civil Rights who is looking for someone to check his cites. One school may have a renowned Moot Court program to train prospective trial attorneys, and another school may offer a clinic where students can get involved with providing legal advice to indigent clients. Once you identify law schools that match your academic profile in the region of the country where you want to go to school, you can start researching which law school is actually best for you. Good luck!

What Do You Say In Adoption/Family Court...?
When The Wife Proves I Ain'T The Biological Father Cause She Like Cheated On Me? And Now The Biological Father Wants To Parent His 3 Month Old Baby Girl And His 2 Year Old Son. But Like Ain'T I The Father Cause I Am Like On The Birth Certifacte And We Are Like Married. Seraperated But Married.
It depends on what you want and what state you live in. (I think you said Texas in your last question.)
If you wish to not be responsible for the children you can give up your parental rights, but if you wish to remain in the children's lives you can fight for the right to remain their father. Most states consider a man who is married to a mother at the time of birth a legal father. (Having your name on the birth certificate is a big plus.) You will need to show the Court that you have supported these children and acted in the capacity of a father to these children and that you intend to continue to do so and that this is in THE BEST INTERESTS OF THE CHILDREN. Know your rights and speak from your heart.
Good luck to you and especially the children!
Texas Legal Definition of a Father:
Legal Definition of “Father”
Texas Family Code §§ 160.102; 160.204
‘’Adjudicated father’’ means a man who has been adjudicated by a court to be the father of a child.
‘’Presumed father’’ means a man who, by operation of law under § 160.204, is recognized as the father of a child
until that status is rebutted or confirmed in a judicial proceeding.
A man is presumed to be the father of a child if:
He is married to the mother of the child and the child is born during the marriage.
He is married to the child’s mother and the child is born before the 301st day after the date the marriage is terminated.
He married the child’s mother before the birth of the child even if the attempted marriage is or could be declared invalid, and the child is born during the invalid marriage or before the 301st day after the date the marriage is terminated.
He married the child’s mother after the birth of the child, regardless of whether the marriage is or could be declared invalid, he voluntarily asserted his paternity of the child, and: » The assertion is in a record filed with the Bureau of Vital Statistics. » He is voluntarily named as the child’s father on the child’s birth certificate. » He promised in a record to support the child as his own.
During the first 2 years of the child’s life, he continuously resided in the household in which the child resided and he represented to others that the child was his own.
Revocation of Claim to Paternity:
Texas Family Code §§ 160.414; 160.307; 160.308; 160.414
A signatory may rescind an acknowledgment of paternity by commencing a proceeding to rescind before the earlier of:
60 days after the effective date of the acknowledgment
The date of the first hearing in a proceeding to which the signatory is a party before a court to adjudicate an
issue relating to the child, including a proceeding that establishes child support After the period for rescission has expired, a signatory of an acknowledgment of paternity may commence a proceeding to challenge the acknowledgment only on the basis of fraud, duress, or material mistake of fact. The proceeding must be commenced before the fourth anniversary of the date the acknowledgment is filed. A party challenging an acknowledgment of paternity or denial of paternity has the burden of proof.
A registrant [in the putative fathers’ registry] may rescind his registration at any time by sending to the registry a rescission in a record or another manner authenticated by him and witnessed or notarized.
